Update:

The next Destiny update will be released tomorrow, October 7, accompanied by some downtime.

Original Story:

According to some rumors that popped up last week, Destiny’s story underwent multiple changes throughout development.

As part of the Bungie Weekly Update, Community Manager David Dague responded to “the rumors” by offering up this statement:

We’ve seen a lot of theories about Bungie on the Internet this week. I understand why that stuff is compelling. The drama of the rumor mill is a symptom of a greater issue: We all want Destiny to be better. The problem is that sifting through gossip in search of truth doesn’t bring us any closer to a stronger game.

The launch of Destiny changed things for me at Bungie. Ever since you became a community, instead of an audience waiting for a game, I’ve been invited into a room where a dedicated team is talking exclusively about the next updates for Destiny. Through me, you have a seat at their table. I’d rather spend the precious time we have together coming up with ideas for how the game can better support us as a community. I’d rather we look toward the next update. There may come a time when we take a probing look back at the challenges we faced during the development of Destiny, but those won’t be my stories to tell.

You have me to kick around, Guardians, but know that I’m focused on our future together.

This latest rumor follows the discovery of a glitch that revealed some future content for Destiny, with Bungie saying they were placeholder names and none of the future expansion packs were completed yet.

Also in the Weekly Update, Dague admitted that he’d like to see private matches in Destiny too, and he’ll keep bringing it up to the dev team:

I totally get it. I want that, too. I’ll keep bringing it up. In the meantime, I’ll have some dares and challenges to issue to the competitive community. Keep your sights trained on us.

Although we don’t know exactly what it will contain – Dague simply said, “enhancements, refinements, fixes, and tweaks” – the next Destiny update will be released “very soon.”

What would you like to see in the next update?
